We have partnered with the Culinary Federation of Regina, to hold suppers here in the orchard! Starting May 9th until Thanksgiving a different local chef will create a multi-course supper using mainly ingredients from local farms and our orchard. Most of the proceeds goes back to the Culinary Federation which sends their members to locations around the world for training and for competitions.
What happens at the Supper?
Doors open at 5:30, and supper begins at 6:30. We start you off on our outdoor patio(weather permitting) where you can enjoy a glass of wine or non-alcoholic beverage, and enjoy the outdoors and beautiful view of the valley. 20 minutes before the supper begins, we bring you into the winery and take you to your assigned seats. Once everyone is seated, Dean and Sylvia introduce themselves, briefly discuss the history of the orchard, and introduce the chef(s) for the evening. The chef(s) discuss what is on the menu, and proceed with serving the 1st course. After finishing the 2nd course, Dean takes you on a approx 30 minute tour of the orchard(weather permitting) to show many of the fruits we grow, and unique ways we grow them.
How long is the evening?
Typically the evening ends around 8:30-9:00pm, depending on whether a tour occurred, and the number of customers attending.
Are dietary restrictions taken into account for the meal?
Yes, the chefs can accommodate most dietary restrictions(Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten, allergies, etc.) if given a few days notice to prepare. Reservations made the day of or the day prior to the Supper, may not allow the chef enough time to make adjustments.
Is the Menu for the evening available before reserving?
No, it is difficult for the chefs to know exactly what will be on the menu until the date gets closer. They use a lot of local ingredients, and the supply of these ingredients are not always dependable.
What are the costs?
The Supper costs $70/person. Individual glasses of wine(5 oz glass) is $6, and non-alcoholic beverages (Cherry Spritzer/Coffee) are available for $3.50. Our wine pairing option(Each course is paired with 2oz of one of our wines) is $25.
When will the schedule be released so I can see which chefs are coming on which dates?
The Culinary Federation typically gives us a preliminary schedule in early April, and will be posted on our Events page.
What happens if I have to cancel my reservation?
There is a $35/person cancellation fee, we encourage you to try to find someone else to take the tickets.
How many seats are available for each Supper?
There are 56 seats available.
How to I reserve my seats?
